Glasses have always been the hottest annual talk pre-summer season and as usual there is a “must have” model and this year it’s the Wayfarers. Unfortunately they have been mentioned in magazines and on blogs as much as Bin Laden was talked about during year 2001, making them totally un-cool. But if you really want to wear them, hurry pick up some cheap look-a-likes before they make it to your local grocery store for old big belly 40 years old fathers to buy.
The glasses I want are of the model below. I tried out a pair from Dior and they looked perfect on my face, and the quality was superb too. They are a great hybrid of aviators and big shades. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to find some cheap ass copies because I’m not the type of person who wants to fork over 250 euro for a pair of glasses. Hugo Boss has almost identical ones for 150 euro, although they didn’t feel as exquisite as the ones from Dior.
I do own a pair of cheap glasses which I use when I drive but other than that I rarely wear glasses, and I have a good reason for that. During a hot summer day I want all the good looking women dressed in skirts and tank tops to be able to meet my eyes.
